I'm new to tropical fish, but I have only great things to say about Elys. I've lived in the area all of my life and driven past the place but had no idea what was inside until a few weeks ago. All I can say is WOW!!! There are so many fish! I had no idea there were so many varieties. Steve was very helpful and patient with me. He told me to bring in a water sample before he would sell me any fish, and then tested it for free. I started with some beautiful barbs and a few catfish and my kids are really enjoying the aquarium. I have already told my friends about Ely's!

It's an amazing place filled with so many varieties of fish. If your a true tropical fish hobbyist, looking for an unusual, exotic breed, you won't be disappointed. Best selection I've seen in fish and hardy too. Check it out!

Flag IlovefishRating: 1 Only place to go posted 12 seconds agoI have been a hobbiest for over 10 years, tried all the chains stores. Once I found Elys, I was hooked. This is the best place to go for this hobby. Amazing selection of fish and supplies, ponds and all type of decorations. Steve is like a walking encyclopedia of fish. His experience in this hobby is what keeps me going back. Always has the right suggestions. The fish are always healthy.
He stands behinds what he sells.
Easy to get to and plenty of parking. You have to check this place out.

You have to see this place to believe it!
If you are into fish, then Ely's is a MUST VISIT.
He has sooooo many fish! Such a great selection. The owner Steve will help answer any question you may have and has been in business over 40 years. This is an old fashioned family business. There aren't many left like it. I would recommend this place to anyone who is a serious hobbyist or just looking for a fun way to spend an afternoon.

Pros: Large selection, one of a kind, old fashioned small biz

Cons: no bathroom or air conditioning

Ely's has the best selection around! Great prices, and lots of tanks to look at! Steve is very knowledgeable and will answer any questions you have! It's a great place for anyone just starting out a tank or the hobbyist who has multiple tanks! My kids enjoy going too because Steve will let them feed the fish in the pond out front! We all love going to Ely's!!!

LOTS of tropical fish and some common aquarium plants. It's a maze of aquariums. Trumps the big pet stores by FAR with variety of fish, small to very large. More fish than most of the NYC aquatic shops. EVERY aquarium supply, also. I almost did not go because of the 2star review... I found the sales guys helpful and knowledgeable-definitely serious about the hobby. Pond plants and supplies too. Support our local shops!

State of the art for knowledgable enthusiasts. Steve is tied into a lot of first rate breeders and can get you anything you want. And they are always healthy. He is also very knowledgable and helpful, and will work with you to resolve the many issues that confront hobbyists.

the place has a very cool assortment of fish, in sizes and type that you don't normally see (ie; small sample- huge clown loaches, sting-rays, gorgeous fancy guppies).
Disappointing aquarium plant selection and display.
Outdoor aquatics I cannot review.
Here is the negative.the place is a hell hole...totally gross, smelly and the guy that is there was totally anti-social.
I imagine he may be a savant of sorts, due to the total disgusting smell and mess the place is, yet his fish are pretty remarkable, if you can see them through the algae and crust on the tank's glass.
I think if I brought my wife or daughter there, they would get the shkeevies and walk out, my boys would love it.

I have been getting my fish here for over 40 years. Even though I now live over an hour and a half away. Their fish are just more hardy and healthy. Well worth the trip!!! A wide variety and very knowledgable staff.

This place has a very large assortment of fishes. They have every color and type. This is the place to go if your looking for a certain fish, you will find it here. They also have alot of supplies such as tanks, filters, and food. Their prices are also decent and not too expensive.
